Lighthouse Group and International Consolidated Airlines Group may be trading at prices below their likely values. This suggests that these stocks are undervalued, meaning we can benefit when the stock price moves to its true valuation. There’s a few ways you can measure the value of a company – you can forecast how much money it will make in the future and base your valuation off of this, or you can look around at its peers of similar size and industry to roughly estimate what it should be worth. Below, I’ve created a list of companies that compare favourably in all criteria based on their most recent financial data, making them potentially good investments.

Formed in 2000, and run by CEO Malcolm Streatfield, the company now has 140 employees and has a market cap of GBP £23.37M, putting it in the small-cap stocks category.

LGT’s shares are currently hovering at around -41% lower than its true value of £0.32, at a price tag of £0.19, based on its expected future cash flows.
